So I went to the yarn store and splurged on some yarn for a hat they had on display (finally, a project for myself!). I was afraid that I'd be in big trouble for not knitting from my stash, but then McKay said, "You know, I've knit hats before." Ok. Fine. 1 beret doesn't mean "hats." but he offered to knit that hat up for me! Aww... And so I'm not guilty of buying that yarn for myself! I bought that yarn for McKay, who isn't bound to knit from his stash, as, well, he doesn't have a stash.
In the sock realm, while McKay and I were watching the Bourne Identity, I was making SO MUCH progress. The pattern was fairly simple: decrease, knit in pattern 11 rounds, decrease, knit in pattern 11 rounds, decrease. So I was doing that, and after going around my 11 rounds, I flip to the next sheet of pattern, and it says "knit in pattern 5 rounds." What!? I just did my 11 rounds like the 5 sets before hand, and because I was in a groove. Now I have to frog out 6 rounds to get those 5! And the pattern is really cable-y and I'm going to have to go stitch by stitch so I don't drop any!
Thursday we're leaving for a road trip. We'll be gone until Sunday (coming back probably late Sunday night).
